Construction and characterization of monoclonal antibodies against western equine encephalitis virus.

A repertoire of mouse monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against western equine encephalitis virus (WEE) was constructed and characterized. Anti-WEE antibodies were expressed from hybridomas and purified by protein G chromatography. Each of the antibodies was functionally assessed by indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs), Western blotting, and… (More)
